I don't think the star thing is bad. It's actually quite nice- wherever you are, you can look up and see a reminder of your Orion in the cosmos. It's also got a very accessible sound- Ryan has been...
I get the appeal of the sound. I do. But it's got such absolutely horrendous connotations, and I wouldn't want my child's...
A few that aren't on nameberry:
Would definitely work: Kia-Rose, Brenda, Nyssa, Christabella, Lula, Kenzie, Genesis (this is in the top 100, and inching towards the top 50,) Anella, Atticus, Bastien, Mathias, Sam
It ranks in the top 100 on its own, not counting all the girls nicknamed Ellie. Looking for El- beginners only in the top 200, you have:
I prefer Dominic. I like the name better, I think it's more classic, and it has several great nickname options. Nico is as cool and "surfer-y" as Zane, but it also comes with the more formal Dominic...

Gaia is by far my favorite for all the reasons you listed. It has a beautiful meaning and a very accessible sound. Wonderful choice.
Persephone is okay. I could see it working, but it just seems...
I love Amity! I think Dove could possibly work. For middle names, I think you can go wild, but I prefer a very out there middle with a more traditional first name for balance. So I like Amity Kate or...
Scout has a pretty unobtrusive sound (like the much more popular Marie, Rose, or Grace) so I think it goes with almost anything as a middle. As long as the first is more than one syllable and doesn't...

Another vote for Ava.
I actually don't care too much about popularity, and I would have no problem using a popular name, but Ava is more what I call trendy. I think some popular names- Anna and...
Not at all. I love this name.
I think it's nice. Serena isn't my favorite, but it's a perfectly good name. I don't know if you're still looking, but there are a lot of ways to honor someone named Janet Irene.
Names that mean...
Emmery Jade- With all the Emilys out there, I think Emery/Emmery would probably be quite confusing.
Linnea Sophie- LOVE this. My favorite name on the list, by far. I don't hear Sophie in the...

I like Weston! I'm not a huge fan of the 2-syllable, -n ending pattern with Hudson, but it's not that bad. Plus, Griffin is also 2 syllables and ends in n and Hayes has the same first letter as...
I see where you're coming from, but I also think there's a difference between not liking dated names and advocating that every child be named McKayleigh. I'm definitely in the minority on nameberry,...
Native American is not a language... there's a character called Nokomis in Ojibwe legend, but it means "grandmother," not "daughter of the moon."
Anyway, I like Ned for Edward, Avi (Ah-vee) for...
I think it works as a middle. It's a bit much for me as a first name- it's quite long and has this very bouncy quality, along with a tragic literary association, that makes it seem unfit for everyday...
Adelina Grace- I prefer Adeline, but Adelina is fine. Grace is a bit of a filler mn to me.
Amelia Carianne- Carianne's not my favorite, but I like Amelia.
Alyssa Violet- Alyssa is dated, and...

I'm a bit late, but I'd like to say that I really like Bennett, Declan, and Malachi from your signature, and I'm glad you're reconsidering Camden. It's very solidly masculine to me, but my first...
I love Reverie! It's got a great sound and the word has a nice meaning. I agree that two nouns in a name is a bit much, though- would you consider a more classic midddle?
I only read the start of this thread- not sorting through 11 pages!
OF COURSE your name does not define you. OF COURSE there is much more to a person than their name. OF COURSE names are not...

Very well-said, Pam! Excellent post.
I think perhaps I'm not making myself clear. There is a huge difference between racist people and racist systems (including structural violence and...

I'm not denying that there are or were white slaves or that no people of color were guilty in the slave trade; many different societies have practiced slavery throughout history and it wasn't always...

I assume you're talking about the Irish slave trade? You're right, those slaves suffered just as much as their counterparts of other races; but just because there were (and still are) white...
I feel the same way about that name! My favorite alternative is Indira because it sounds very nearly the same, but it comes with its own very strong connotations. I'm not sure if you'll like these,...
